References:

From Schreiner’s Iris catalog, 1948: VELVET DUSK (Schreiner 1948) ML. 36". Another new addition to the very dark colored Iris, Velvet Dusk is a descendent of Sable and carries the coloring of that family of darks with a rich glisten like the glow and sheen of a piece of black fur. The good sized flowers are carried on well-branched stems. The bloom is full, well flared and rounded. Its form seems as if chiseled and the sonorous dull bluish brown beard is in fitting harmony with the flower. Later blooming than Sable. $15.00.
